The broad, low-profile design of this scoop is ideal for transferring soil quickly from bags, taking a large volume of soil in each scoop. The sloped walls help reduce spills, and the serrated edges are convenient for cutting open bags of soil or mulch.
Unlike typical hand tools that force you to keep your wrist at an awkward angle, the curved handle lets you keep your joints in natural positions, while the strongest arm muscles do the work. The 1 3/8" diameter handle is also thicker than most, making it easier to grip, especially for arthritic hands. Made of strong aluminum-magnesium alloy.
